Our Story

Modestman Brewing is the brain-child of Ash Sheehan, owner/operator. With a curated team of the finest Master Brewers and professional tasting room staff, the brewery continues to grow over the united belief that brewing beer and the communal experience of shared pints, must be intentional and reflective of where our passions lie.  Ultimately, we lead the business with reverence and respect to the industry and our customers who share our beer.

About the Beer

What intrigues Modestman, almost as much as what beer is being brewed currently, is the nuanced personalities and intensities behind the product. Modestman’s master brewers have a deep understanding of traditional beer styles. We source only the finest ingredients possible for our beers. The high quality and attention to detail make way for exceptional world-class beer.


"We work within the trends of the industry without compromising our identity and integrity. We appreciate European style brewing and respect Old World traditions."

- Ash Sheehan

Modestman aims to put New Hampshire on the map for superior New England style beers with the goal to elevate the classic American brewpub, showcasing a deep respect for the beer and intentionality to the culture it celebrates!

Our Tasting Room and brewery are renovated from a former bank that occupied the location for 58 years. People love to ask us what we did with the vault… well you will never know, the secret is safe with us!


Although we are known for our New England style IPA’s (NEIPA), we brew all styles of beer, while applying the same attention to detail as we do in our IPA’s.
